WEST FARMS, The Bronx — For the first time since 2019, the Tour de Bronx, the largest cycling event in the borough, and one of the largest in the city, returns.
The event, featuring 1,000 cyclists riding either 25 or 40 miles through some of the northernmost borough’s most scenic locations, is on Sunday, Oct. 23.
The tour is organized by Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson. She joined the more than 50 sponsors of the tour last Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Bronx River Art Center, to thank them for their support.
PIX11 News reporter James Ford was master of ceremonies at the event, and will also host the Tour de Bronx kickoff on Sunday morning.
Festivities begin at 10 a.m. at 161st Street and Grand Concourse, three blocks east of Yankee Stadium. The ride starts at 11:00 a.m., and ends at the New York Botanical Garden.
PIX11 is one of its proud sponsors.
Riders should arrive around 1 p.m. and the program on stage begins at around 2:30 p.m. The Bronx borough president is scheduled to be at the Garden around 3 p.m.
